There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, Morrel, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.
" Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, 'Wait and Hope.
Alexandre Dumas

Criss Jami
“When emerging from humble beginnings, those around you tend to underestimate your authenticity because they knew you before you were 'somebody'.”
Criss Jami

Elif Shafak
“We're stuck. We're stuck between the East and the West. Between the past and the future. On the one hand there are the secular modernists, so proud of the regime they constructed, you cannot breathe a critical word. They've got the army and half of the state on their side. On the other hand there are the conventional traditionalist, so infatuated with the Ottoman past, you cannot breathe a critical word. They've got the general public and the remaining half of the state on their side.”
Elif Shafak, The Bastard of Istanbul

Paulo Coelho
“Close cycles. Not because of pride or arrogance, but because that no longer fits your life”
Paulo Coelho

Zadie Smith
“When the male organ of a man stands erect, two thirds of his intelect go away. And one third of his religion.”
Zadie Smith, White Teeth

Scott Hahn
“If you complain to someone, you assume that it's someone who really cares about you.”
Scott Hahn, Hope for Hard Times
